“Dexter: New Blood ss 2”: release date, announcement
After first considering a sequel to “Dexter”, the creators hoped to emulate the success of the first TV show, released in 2006. But they could not even imagine that the rating of the project “Dexter: New Blood” on IMDb will be 9.1 points, while its predecessor collected 8.6 points. Despite these numbers, even before the premiere of the season 1 of “Dexter: New Blood” the producers were talking about the fact that it will be a limited TV project, consisting of 10 episodes. As of December 2022, there is no information that new episodes are being worked on.
This small town near New York is the perfect place to hide from prying eyes. Having decided to calmly enjoy life, Dexter does not hunt for new killers, but simply lives day after day. He is building a relationship with Angela. The woman works in the police, brings up a daughter and is often busy, which does not bother her boyfriend in the least. On the contrary, he has a lot of time for himself.
One day the local rebel Matt comes to the gun shop. He demands to sell him a weapon, and Dexter has to use all his communication skills to clearly explain to the guy that such a gun needs FBI permission. After a couple of days, Matt manages to get a gun and he decides to go hunting. Upon learning that the guy was guilty of the deaths of people on the boat, Dexter felt a thirst for blood again and realized that he would return to his former activities.
At the same time, the main character begins to feel that someone is watching him. One day he finds a boy in his house who followed him. Harrison says he is his son. However, Dexter realizes that the boy will not be safe here.
Dexter asks the guy to leave, because he does not have a normal life next to his father. A frustrated Harrison leaves, and his father begins to plot to kill Matt. When the case is over, Dexter realizes what a terrible mistake he made. Realizing that life without a son seems impossible to him, he returns the boy and decides to keep it, but without disclosing the details.
Convinced that all the people close to him are dying, Dexter is ready to save his son thousands of times, if only he remains close. And not far from them, another father yearns, whose son Matt just disappeared without a trace and now no one can find him… Did the main character know that he had made a monstrous enemy for himself? And what are Harrison’s chances of a normal life in this godforsaken place?
